Salakot sunset in Hoan Kiem Lake

The salakot or conical hat is archetypal Asian and while we have it in the Philippines, it is more strongly associated with Vietnam. And rightfully so, because even in the city, people unabashedly wear it to shield them from the strong sun or the rain. Having no one to model this salakot, the task fell on our shoulders so I'm returning the favor to my buddy, ironwulf, for featuring me in his Vietnam preview post. Aan afternoon of waiting for the sun to set on Hoan Kiem Lake.
